I'm always enchanted by the work artists are able to fashion from glass.  Etsy artist, funnyfuser, is no exception.  Although I was first attracted to her vibrant, colorful and eclectic barrettes, funnyfuser's shop is filled with a variety of adornments, perfect for those with a passion for color and life.

Wearable Art Collection

Fused Glass Jewelry
Puzzle Pieces Set
Pendant Necklace and Earrings
Sterling silver wrapping
Anodized Niobium earring hooks

When glass breaks, I go into action. I couldn't resist layering these broken pieces onto a great blue base to get this interesting set. All fused glass, dichroic and art glass.

Known as Glass Girl, Arlene of funnyfuser finds her inspiration anywhere and everywhere.  Simple things, like music or the time of day can serve as her muse for her vibrant work.

Predictably, this Glass Girl's favorite medium to work with is glass, whether it be fused, blown or lampwork.  She specializes in jewelry and personal adornments that are all hypo-allergenic and nickel free. Metals used in her work include sterling silver, as well as anodized titanium and niobium.

Barrette Collection

FunnyFuser Fused Glass Art & Jewelry

I discovered this gorgeous barrette on funnyfuser's flickr pages.  Both my teen daughter and I have long hair, so we are always on the prowl for new and different hair adornments.  I'm humored but also pleased that my daughter is taken with all things unique.  When I was a teen, dressing and essentially looking the same was "in".  It's wonderful that she wants to express herself in her own, individual style.  funnyfuser offers pieces do allow one to do just that.

Arlene's favorite pieces within her work are also the barrettes she creates in her home studio in San Diego, California.  She loves the diversity, from "sedate to edgy".
